You can never have too many boot cuffs, right?
Especially when they take less than two hours to make. You can whip up a new pair to coordinate with any of your fall-favorite outfits.
I created this pattern using one of my favorite boot cuff yarns, Lion Brand Wool-Ease. So why is this yarn my favorite for boot cuffs? Well, most importantly, I love the way it works up. It’s stretchy and provides excellent stitch definition (allows you to see each stitch). Aside from these desirable qualities, the only negative (for me) turns into a positive when making a boot cuff. I have a slight aversion to wool next to my skin; scratchy wool that is. So although you won’t find me working up a cowl in Wool-Ease, you can guarantee that the majority of my boot cuffs will be using this great yarn because they never touch my skin.
So I mentioned these boot cuffs take less than two hours to make. Let’s get started!

Gauge and Sizing
6 sts x 7 rows = 2″ worked in pattern
Your finished boot cuff will fit calves measuring 11″-13″ in circumference. When laying flat the boot cuffs will measure approximately 5.5″ wide and 4″ tall.
- BBO – Back bar only
- Ch – Chain
- Hdc – Half Double Crochet
- Slst – Slip Stitch
This is a very versatile pattern. If you need to make adjustments to the sizing, you can do so by making more or less chains at the beginning. There is no stitch multiple for this pattern so you can create a foundation chain of any size that fits your calf.

Ch 42. Make sure this “foundation chain” fits around your calf and make adjustments as needed. Join with a slst to the first chain to form a ring.
Round 1: Hdc in every chain. Do not join with a slst, continue working in a spiral.
Rounds 2-11: Hdc in the bbo of every stitch. Do not join at the end of each round, simply crochet around and around until you have reached 11 rounds, or your boot cuff measures approximately 4″ in length.
On your final round, stop crocheting in the same area as the first stitch. You will recognize this because the bottom edge will be uneven. Once you have made your last Hdc, slst in the next two stitches.
Bind off and weave in your ends.
